1. BRAIN BASED LEARNING
This course = Brain based learning; Latest Research and Evidence.
Learn the way the brain likes to learn. Left and right brain functioning. The limited academic brain CURRENT Research is proving that when students understand the “why” of the methods taught; there is a much greater buy-in to the skills and confidence in their use.
Students are excited by the limitless potential of their brains.
 
2. KEY WORDS
This forms the basis of all the skills taught. Effective selection of key words promotes focus and understanding and reduce boredom. Key words reduce study time by as much as 80% and increase recall by up to the same amount – particularly when using memory hooks.

Colleen and I dissected the links between neuroscience and learning, and explored why the transfer of learning is crucial from a cognitive point of view. Colleen’s knowledge is remarkable, and of course I was excited to learn that my instinctual beliefs in the importance of learning transfer are truly backed up by science…
